Southern Cross Housing and St Vincent de Paul have worked together for many years providing quality services & support to people at-risk of homelessness and people experiencing homelessness.

SCH is proud to once again partner with Vinnies as they launched a new initiative to deliver outreach sessions for our tenants at the Schregel Place Community Room. These sessions offer a unique opportunity for tenants living in Schregel Place, Nowra and the surrounding area to access advice, support, and information on a wide range of topics, including:

  • Managing current tenancy issues
  • Housing information, assistance with completing any & all housing-related forms and advice on accommodation options across the housing continuum.
  • Financial management advice/referrals, assistance with managing arrears, assistance applying for & managing rental bonds, WDO’s & material support.
  • Confidential & non-judgemental alcohol & other drug support.
  • Advocacy & linkage to services across the community services spectrum
  • First Nations specific support.


If you’re a SCH tenant in Nowra who feels like they’ve got unmet support needs, have a problem but aren’t sure where to turn for help or you just want a friendly face to have a cuppa & a yarn with, we encourage you to attend one of these sessions.

Sessions are held every Friday at the Community Room at 1 Schregel Place in Nowra.
